76 year-old victim has purse stolen after 'violent' hammer attack on the Spen Valley Greenway in Cleckheaton

AN ELDERLY woman was hit on the head with a hammer during a "violent attack" on the Spen Valley Greenway in Cleckheaton
The 76-year-old victim was approached from behind while walking onto the Greenway after passing the Tesco supermarket at around 2.20pm yesterday. 
She was struck to the back of the head with a hammer by the suspect who then made off with her purse.
The woman was taken to hospital for treatment to a head injury and remained there overnight. Her injury is not described as life-threatening.


Kirklees CID would like to speak to any witnesses regarding the incident, and a police spokesman said a number of enquiries were ongoing today to trace the suspect, who is described as a white man, slim, aged around 60, wearing a woolly bobble hat and glasses.
Detective Inspector Mark Colman, of Kirklees CID, said: "This is a very serious incident in which an elderly victim has been struck to the head in a violent attack near to a shopping area.
"Fortunately the victim was not seriously injured, but this assault could easily have had far worse consequences and it is important we locate the man responsible as soon as possible.
